Wildlife on film

An extensive survey of wildlife in the southwest, northeast and east of Cambodia

carried out by government conservation staff has recorded more than 60 species of

mammals. Automated cameras used as part of the survey have snapped the first photographs

of tigers living in the wild.

However it was not all good news. Kirirom National Park west of Kampot was found

to have lost almost all its large mammals to hunting or land mines. However researchers

did find the elusive spotted linsang, a slender, cat-like carnivore. It is the first

time this species has been recorded in Cambodia.
